Wonderful sounds from The Prisoners – an ultra-hip UK combo from the early 80s, and one who never fully got their due – although their keyboardist James Taylor later rose to great fame in the funk, soul, and acid jazz scenes! The Prisoners are a bit of a mod reviva
l group, but have also gotten a lot more psych-oriented by this time in their career – at a level that really prefaces work to come from the Creation Records scene – and which makes us wonder if The Prisoners would have rose with the fame of those groups, had they held on a few years longer! Taylor's organ lines tie together the raspy vocals, tight drums, and riffing guitars – which almost have a Jam-like tightness at times, but are looser and more trippy at others. Titles include "Go Go", "Hurricane", "Tonight", "Love Me Lies", "Far Away", "For Now & Forever", and "Here Come The Misunderstood". CD features 11 more bonus tracks added to the original album – including "Coming Home", "The Last Thing On Your Mind", "Reaching My Head", "Tomorrow", "Love Changes", "Revenge Of The Cybermen", and "What I Want".
